I currently own a D200 and I am looking to upgrade to a D300 or D700. I have the following lenses: 18-200 VR, 10.5 fisheye, 50 F1.4 and the 70 - 200 f/2.8. I shoot everything: portraits, model portfolios, wildlife, landscapes & sports. I currently do not like pushing the D200 above ISO 400. I understand that the D300 should give me usable action shots at 1600 ISO while the D700 will allow me to work at an ISO of 6400. So now comes the big question, do I select the higher ISO range (great for low light) or the greater reach (1.5x) for sports and wildlife?

I am hoping to decide by this Monday: Amazon has the D300 for $1560 and the D700 for $2799 and are offering both at 24 mos interest-free through the end of the month.

BTW, I plan to keep my D200 as a back-up.
